Session 3 of 8
Ezra 8-10 - Ezra sends for the Levites and Nethinim: Ezra proclaims a fast for the Lords protection: Gods people fail to separate from surrounding nations: reconciliation to God through confession and separation.
The books of Ezra and Nehemiah (and Esther) cover about 100 years, closing the Old Testament historical books. The books of Samuel, Kings, and Chronicles closed with the Southern Kingdom (Judah)'s going into captivity. The two post-exile books of Ezra and Nehemiah record the return from Babylon after its fall to the Persians under Cyrus, the rebuilding of the Temple and Jerusalem, and the reestablishment of the national life of Israel.
Presented by Dr. Chuck Missler.
